The Ferrari 312p was a Group 6 Prototype-Sports Car used for racing in 1969 and 1970. The 312P was basically a 3-litre F1 Ferrari 312 with an open roof, and later was changed to a closed top Berlinetta design, like this example here. Many publications added the letter B after the P of its name to indicate its engine type, but this variation was never officially sanctioned by Ferrari which simply called it the 1971 312P.

The 312P had it's first race at the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1969. Ferrari were short of money and so started only one 312P. Mario Andretti took pole position, and with Chris Amon as co-driver, managed to finish second.
